North Korea Warns State Dept Report Shows Hostile US Policy

Spies see Kim considering December summit

South Korea’s spy agency says they believe that more working-level talks between the US and North Korea are likely to be held soon, and that Kim Jong Un is considering a December summit with President Trump.

North Korea didn’t comment on that, but continued to express doubt as to the intentions of US officials after last week’s State Department document declared them one of the state sponsors of terrorism.

North Korea says that the report proves the US is continuing a “hostile policy,” and warned that the chances for talks are narrowing because of the US attitude and lack of flexibility.

Being on the list of state sponsors of terrorism is more of a political decision in the US than an actual reality. At present, Iran, Syria, Sudan, and North Korea are the four nations on the list. Generally, additions or removals from the list are either the result of Congressional actions, or presidential orders.
